Why am I getting a Prop 65 warning when I place an online nut/candy order?
Proposition 65 is a California law that requires a "clear and
reasonable warning" to consumers for products that contain
chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth
defects, or other reproductive harm. For details, click here.
Will we use a software system for ordering, calculating sales, and
Yes, the software system is called M2OS. It can handle nut,
magazine, and personalized product orders. September training dates
will be posted on the GSGLA website (www.girlscoutsla.org).
Will an ACH (Automatic Clearing House) system to collect funds be
due to council?
Yes, the debit will be on Dec. 2, so make sure you have sufficient
funds to cover the amount due at least seven days before this debit
date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not wait until the day
before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into your troop
account; you should be depositing promptly and frequently and
encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they/their daughter
have/has collected promptly and frequently.
If I am a Juliette, can I still participate in the fall program?
Yes. Reach out to the product program manager in your area so she
can put you in touch with the service unit fall product chair nearest you.
Will there be a fall Gift of Caring (GOC) program?
Yes, customers may make monetary GOC donations (in $6 increments).
GSGLA will then purchase nuts to be sent to the LAX USO, local food
banks through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Operation
Gratitude. Gift of Caring receipts are available for those that
What about the magazine portion of the sale?
All magazine orders are taken online. When a girl (with her parent)
sets up her storefront in M2OS she will be emailing family and friends
about her sale. A link in that email will direct her customers to her
store where they can choose to order nut/candy products and/or
order/renew magazine subscriptions. For magazines, the troop will
receive 20% of the total dollar amount sold. This portion of the
program is linked directly with the nut/candy portion, she doesn’t
need to do anything different when setting up her storefront, her
customers will be sent links to both shopping areas.
Also, new this year is the opportunity to purchase personalized
items (such as stationery, napkins, and picture frames); each item can
be personalized with a name, monogram, or favorite saying.
Do I need to participate in both the Fall Product Program and
Cookie Program in order to do any additional money-earning
events/projects? What is the current participation definition?
Additional Money Earning
Beginning with the 2022 Fall Product Program, the participation
definition has been updated to the following in order for a troop to
do any additional money earning projects:
Troops and girls must participate in both council-sponsored product
programs to be eligible to do additional money-earning projects.
Participation is demonstrated by the girls learning or enhancing the
5 Skills, and contribution towards the support of program activities
for Girl Scouts throughout the Greater Los Angeles council.
Participation is defined by 50% of the registered girls in the
troop both earning the Participation Patch and meeting or
exceeding the emails-sent
for each council-sponsored product program (emails must be sent
through the applicable vendor software to qualify).
The 2022 Fall Product Program and 2023 Cookie Program participation
requirements are defined as:
Fall Product Program = 10 units per girl (nuts/candy product =
1 unit each; magazine order = 2 units each) and 18+ emails sent
Cookie Program = 24 packages of cookies per girl and 18+ emails
sent through Digital Cookie.
Senior/Ambassador Gold Award Girls
A Senior/Ambassador Girl Scout earning her Gold Award must
participate in the council-sponsored product programs, earn the
participation patch, and send 18 emails through our vendor platforms
in both programs in order to do any additional
money-earning projects needed to support her Gold Award project.
NOTE: Troop participation to support girls working on Gold Award
projects with money-earning components is encouraged; however, it is
not required that 50% of the registered girls reach the participation
level defined above.
I understand there is a service unit bonus. What is that?
We know you have big plans to support your troops next year, but
might be a little short on funds to do that. While we will have the
requirements to earn posted here shortly, here's a high-level answer.
Set a service unit goal of at least X units per girl selling. Organize
your team on how to achieve it. Service units that have the minimum
required X% participation rate AND have a Per-Girl Average (PGA) that
meets or exceeds the target (TBD), will receive proceeds per number of
Example: If in 2021 a SU had 200 girls registered as of Oct. 1, 2021
and 110 girls participated, their participation is 55%.
